Survey on Intellectual Property Trading - Major Findings


The Survey was commissioned by the IPD in June 2014 to collect information on IP trading activities in Hong Kong. The Survey covered establishments in selected industries in which IP-related businesses are likely to be prevalent.  These establishments were classified into two main groups, namely, (a) IP intermediaries, and (b) IP creators/owners/users.  A total of 2 329 establishments were successfully enumerated in the Survey.  They included 437 IP intermediaries and 1 892 IP creators/owners/users.

The Survey collected opinions and quantitative information from the surveyed establishments on four major aspects in relation to their IP trading activities –

(1) the scope of IP-related services/activities conducted;

(2) the number of persons engaged in IP-related activities;

(3) business receipts generated by and the expenses incurred in IP-related businesses; and

(4) respondents’ views on the development of IP trading in Hong Kong.
